The Graphic 45 Design Team Alumni Blog Takeover: Day 4 with Miranda Edney!
Today, we have the magnificent Miranda Edney taking over the Graphic 45 blog! Miranda is such a talented designer. We are so lucky to have her take over the blog today! Let's jump into the fun:
I just love altering letters, and had this set that spelled out sail! what better collection to create a gorgeous beachy decor piece.
I made my own little sailboat at the end. So easy to do! This paper begs to be fussy cut! One of my all time new faves!
G45 always knocks it out of the park with their imagery!
Okay so it's no secret i LOVE altering clocks! But i wanted to switch things up just a bit! I covered every single piece (except the handle and the legs) with the papers! Decoupaging can take some time! I know! But the end result is so worth it! I try to make it look as seamless as possible! I got grungey with some of my compass pieces, like it had been sitting at the bottom of the sea. I sure hope you like my odd spin on the classic altered clock :)
I bought this cheap-o ONE DOLLAR plastic mirror a long long time ago. Knowing one day i would feel inspired to give it an updo! Graphic 45 papers are perfect for items like this! I did lots of fussy cutting to fit pieces in where i needed them to go.
Rare Oddities Paper 12x12
Antique Brass Door Knockers
Shabby Chic Metal Clock Keys
Shabby Chic Metal Door Plates with knobs (knobs only)
Alcohol inks, crackle medium , and various paints from my stash
I was so inspired by the image in the paper with the skull inside of the cloche, I decided to make my own! I pulled out anything I had that matched it somewhat and tried my best to mimic ithe picture , while adding my own spin. It even has LED light strands weaving through out. It looks so nice , lit up at night! I created a 3D Paper pumpkin and then just went to town making flowers and decorating until i was happy with the look. It felt so good to just USE paper. I had not made flowers with my own hands in years! IT was so fun! For the most part anyways lol! Hope you all like it :)
This week, we are giving away a great prize pack where you can win both Safari Adventure and Hallowe'en in Wonderland! Just comment here on the blog or on our Facebook page to win. We will announce a winner here on the blog tomorrow! So make sure to enter today!
